About the Book

Tchulkaturin, a guy who has learned that he has two weeks left to live, is the person we encounter at Sheep's Springs. He alternates between sharing the events of his life, upbringing, relationships with his family, and experiences, but he believes these activities are just unrelated to where he is right now. Yegor's final cow passed away the night before, and he says of the guy, "That man understands how to bear in quiet," in 1058. If one were to do the arithmetic, that would be everyone suffering in the world. Asanov's letters are given to our narrator by his buddy Pasinkov, who discovers that they are from the same female who has expressed interest in him. When he broaches the subject with her, he discovers that he has been despised and stumbles off pitifully. With Turgenev's justification that "the man who leaves a woman at that great and bitter moment when he is forced to recognize that his heart is not entirely, not fully, hers, has a truer and deeper comprehension of the sacredness of love," Kosolov ultimately succeeds in his claim to be a remarkable man (2070). This is a correspondence between Marya Alexandrovna and Alexy Petrovitch. 15 letters were sent over around two years, in which each party confides and fears the other.

About Author

Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev

Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev, a Russian novelist, short story writer, poet, dramatist, translator, and proponent of Russian literature in the West, lived from 9 November 1818 to 3 September 1883. Russia's Oryol is where Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev was born. His father fought in the Patriotic War of 1812 as a colonel in the Russian cavalry. Turgenev concentrated on Classics, Russian literature, and philology while attending the University of Saint Petersburg from 1834 to 1837 after spending a year at the University of Moscow. Turgenev never wed, but he had many relationships with the family's serfs, one of which gave birth to his daughter Paulinette, who was not his biological child. Oxford conferred an honorary degree on Turgenev in 1879. Turgenev periodically traveled to England, and the University of Oxford awarded him an honorary doctorate in civil law in 1879. Throughout his later years, Turgenev's health deteriorated. An aggressive malignant tumor (liposarcoma) was surgically removed from his suprapubic area in January 1883, but by that time the tumor had spread to his upper spinal cord, giving him excruciating suffering in the months before his death. In his home in Bougival, close to Paris, on September 3, 1883, Turgenev passed away from a spinal abscess, a side effect of metastatic liposarcoma. His bones were transported to Russia and interred at St. Petersburg's Volkovo Cemetery.
